About this product
- DescriptionChristopher Hibbert's biography deals with all aspects of the Queen's life, personality and times, her relations with her large and widespread family, her wicked uncles and their wives and mistresses, and with the politicians, prime ministers and foreign statesmen and monarchs of her day - from her opinionated grandson, the Kaiser, to the Emperor Napoleon III with whom she fell rather in love. The book describes her married life and her failings as a mother, her love of food and gossip, her strange relationships with her Indian and Scottish servants, and her influence on the manners, morals and outlook of the age to which she gave her name.
